Department of Medical Neurology

Professor Dr Win Min Thit

Background History

The history of Neurology first started in early 1966 with a few hospital beds in the general medical and surgical wards in Yangon General Hospital under Institute of Medicine I. In 1969 the founders Neurosurgeon Dr U Saw Nyunt started with his team made up of Neurologist Dr Myat Kyi Than, Neuro-anesthetist Dr Thaung Tun, and a Neuroradiologist Dr Kyi Lin at an old Chemistry Laboratory of Yangon General Hospital (now the Department of Neurosurgery). Since then the service had gradually gained momentum in quality and quantity through the passing years.
The current Department of Neurology, Yangon General Hospital, the first and foremost Neurology Department in Myanmar which is affiliated with University of Medicine I, was established in November 1983 with Dr Myat Kyi Than at a new four storey building donated by the late Hajima Daw Pu. It is 75 bedded building with Neurophysiology unit and Epilepsy centre (1997).
